Course Objectives

Upon completion of this program, participants should be able to :

  • Concepts of confidentiality, integrity and availability
  • Security threats, safeguards, vulnerabilities and attacks
  • Risk management processes
  • Building blocks of information security
  • Security awareness programs
  • IS audit process

Security management entails the identification of an organization's information assets and the development, documentation, and implementation of policies, standards, procedures, and guidelines.

Management tools such as data classification and risk assessment/analysis are used to identify threats, classify assets, and to rate system vulnerabilities so that effective controls can be implemented
